About Sweetness Zukiswa

1. I love providing home care giving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel i have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people in need, so I know I am doing right thing. 2. Being a caregiver for 13 years has helped me in so many ways, I have worked in hospitals (South Africa), nursing home facilities, private duty. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them. 3. Everything i put my mind to, I achieve I'm really self motivated I don't like failing and that's the benefits for me. My biggest achievement I'm proud of is moving here in America. 4. I have a passion for putting others first. Seeing someone with an intellectual disability able to lead a happy, safe and fulfilling life is enough to make it all worthwhile. I'm a hard worker with a positive attitude. When I was seven years old, I always wanted to be a Nurse.
